This Ole House
C                                               F 
This ole house once knew my children, this ole house once knew my wife; 
          G                               C 
This ole house was home and comfort as we fought the storms of life. 
          C                                      F 
This old house once rang with laughter, this old house heard many shouts; 
         G                                  C 
Now she trembles in the darkness when the lightnin' walks about. 
Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer, 
Ain't a-gonna need this house no more; 
           G                         C        C/B     Am7   
Ain't got time to fix the shingles, ain't got time to fix the floor, 
Am7/G       F    F° (III)        F°      C       C/B    Am7 
Ain't got time to  oil  the hinges nor to mend the win-dow-pane; 
G°        G                    G7 
Ain't gonna need this house no longer-- 
               G       G/A  G/B   C 
I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints.  
This ole house is a-gettin' shaky, this ole house is a-gettin' old; 
This ole house lets in the rain, this ole house lets in the cold. 
Oh, my knees are a-gettin' shaky, but I feel no fear nor pain, 
'Cause I see an angel peekin' through a broken windowpane. 
Repeat Refrain: 
This ole house is afraid of thunder, this ole house is afraid of storms; 
This ole house just groans and trembles when the night wind flings its arms. 
This ole house is gettin' feeble, this old house is needin' paint; 
Just like me it's tuckered out, but I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints. 
Repeat Refrain: 
My ol' hound dog lies a-sleepin'--he don't know I'm gonna leave, 
Else he'd wake up by the fireplace and he'd sit there and howl and grieve. 
But my huntin' days are over; ain't gonna hunt the coon no more; 
Gabriel done brought in my chariot when the wind blew down the door. 
Repeat Refrain:

About the artist behind This Ole House:

Johnny Cash, born J. R. Cash, (February 26, 1932 - September 12, 2003) was a Grammy Award-winning American country singer-songwriter. Cash is widely considered to be one of the most influential American musicians of the 20th century.

Cash was known for his deep, distinctive voice, the boom-chick-a-boom or "freight train" sound of his Tennessee Three backing band, his demeanor, and his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname "The Man in Black." He traditionally started his concerts with the introduction "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash."

Much of Cash's music, especially that of his later career, echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption. His signature songs include "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Ring of Fire," "Get Rhythm," "That Old Wheel" (a duet with Hank Williams Jr.), "Cocaine Blues," and "Man in Black". He also recorded several humorous songs, such as "One Piece at a Time," "The One on the Right Is on the Left," "Dirty Old Egg-Sucking Dog," "A Boy Named Sue," and a duet with June Carter called "Jackson"; and various railroad songs, such as "Rock Island Line" and "Orange Blossom Special".

He sold over 90 million albums in his nearly fifty-year career and came to occupy a "commanding position in music history".[1]
